"One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody everything every night before you go to bed."
-Bernard Mannes Baruch
Forgiveness is perhaps the most profound spiritual tool at our disposal. It allows us to release hurt from the past, resentment, and perhaps most importantly it frees us from feeling like a victim. Quite frankly, forgiveness is where Spiritual mastery begins. An unwillingness to live in forgiveness does nothing but hold YOU back. We may mistakenly think that by not forgiving we are punishing someone else for their wrongdoings, but the truth is that we are only punishing ourselves. We are the ones who live with the results of our resentments, no one else.
Today, take the opportunity to begin the forgiveness process. Look deep within and see if there are any resentments you are holding on to. Look at the story that has been told, and continues to be told because you are holding on to these resentments. Imagine the freedom you would feel by letting the story dissipate and ultimately disappear. Look deeper into the Love that supports that idea and let the Love fill you, surround you and flow through you!
You are the point at which the world changes. Replace resentment with love through forgiveness and let it flow!!
